What's in your vise?

Just wondering if you have used the Farrar flash been in a dubbing loop for the head of the fly @Randall Clark ? I've used in a few trout streamers. It's not too bad. I would recommend using a stout thread so you can put some pressure on it when you fold it back collar style. Great looking flies.

I have not. I actually bought a Stonfo dubbing brush device and have used it a handful of times, but never with Farrar. I could see how that would work really good. I need to play around with it a bit more.

Love the nymphs. What are the dubbings involved?
The dubbing is a seals fur blend. According to the book a long time Osprey club member by the name of Bill Starr created the pattern. He specifies 5 parts dark olive, 3 parts light olive, 2 parts yellow, 2 parts red, 1 part grey. Blended in a coffee grinder. Since he lives in Merritt and was very specific about the color I figured it’s a fly worth tying up for the lakes I fish in that area of BC. Likely a while before I can give it a try.

Quigley’s Paracripple (synth wing)







Tied here as a PMD; petrochemical byproduct is much easier for me to work with for the wing/wingpad than ungulate hair in smaller sizes.

hook - WFC Model 3 #16
thread - Veevus 8/0 yellow
shuck - Congo Hair brown
rib - x-small wire copper
abdomen - pheasant tail
thorax - Superfine dubbing PMD
wingpad/wing - Congo Hair shiner tan
hackle - ginger

Regards,
Scott
